Second life of batteries: technical challenges and quality assessment

When batteries retire from EV applications, they often still have 70-80% of capacity. Major car manufacturers have been investing in technologies to exploit remaining capacity in used EV batteries for stationary storage applications such as grid stabilization, industrial, commercial and residential consumption. Although EV battery re-use in stationary applications seems to offer obvious environmental and economic opportunities, whether end-of-life EV batteries should be recycled or re-used is still hotly debated in the community.
